  1. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    So sounds like to me if a life long shooter is wanted best to stick with a reg trigger housing or possibly a trip.
  2. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    How good are these guns? I understand that real M2 are most describable followed by converted M1s. But how well do the universals and plainfeilds hold up? Are they good shooters or have issues?
  3. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Yeah I have spoken with Mr. Andrewski about a sten once and was very impressed with his tactfulness and honesty. I did not realize he did work on other platforms. Just assumed he was the Sten/Sterling guy. That is good to know. Question on Reg Reciever M2 carbines. Do they ever brake? Above posters have spoken on bolts braking but had anyone seen a receiver Crack or lugs shear off?
  4. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Yeah I bought my first MG from Spiwak and it was a crummy experience. Really crappy customer service. My buddy just sent him a check yesterday for his first MG and thus far he is receiving the same crappy customer service. It amazes me that he is still in business. As far as the other dealers go they all seem to be really high and I'm just not going to pay what some of them are asking no matter how nice the pictures are. Id rather buy from someone local and deal direct. Its just kinda a scary experience to hand someone 8K and hope they give you your stuff once the F4 clears. Its just hard finding MGs that are local to me here in GA. I'm sure if I put a WTB ad up Id get some bites but currently not ready for a purchase so not going to do that at the moment. The Riesiing does interest me I even spoke to a guy who had one for sale on Uzitalk and it was a great price. Seems like it was 5.5K with a number of magazine. One of the things that worries me about them is the scarcity of parts and gunsmith that work on them. There maybe a number of MG gunsmiths out there that can work on them. I'm am just not aware of any.

    Where did you see the Reg Receiver at on Midwest? I didn't see it. Also any other good places to look for one? Not currently ready /able to buy probably late next year. Just want to start keeping a log on prices, models etc.. I watch here and UZI talk. I also check out Spiwak, Gunspot and Ruben. Which all seem to be really high.
  6. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Finally shot my semi auto M1 carbine at the shoot this past weekend. First time ever shooting a M1 carbine and man was I impressed. It felt like a 22 and just really amazed me. The noise of the action the feel and recoil just really made it a joy to shoot. I said that to say this. I was previously kinda on the fence with a M2 carbine and just poking around for information now I really want one. Just need to get the funds togeather and find the right deal. I like the idea of a registered trigger housing. Can thay be used on any M1? War production and new Inland/fulton armory guns?
  7. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Thanks for all of the information guys. I am still looking at all my options on a second MG and do like the carbine. Still undecided if I should be looking at other iconic starter MGs. Sten, UZI, Berettas etc.... Open to suggestions as well. The M1/M2 carbine just has that iconic American WW2 history and feel and is just awesome. Do with the ROF was less. Have watched a few YouTube videos and it seems pretty fast.
  8. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Once again thanks guys for the information. 3 More questions. What makes a Round bolt superior to what I am assuming is a square bolt? What price range would a Reg housing be in? 30 Carbine Reloads? What are yall rolling? Plated? FMJ? Powder? etc...
  9. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Thank you so much for the wealth of information. I have a IBM M1 and is mostly a parts gun that I acquired on a trade of all things a lawn mower. lol It is a SKY marked gun on the bottom of the barrel at the front sight I think. From what I remember researching 2 years ago on it was a company in TN brought in a large batch from Austria I think that was lend lease guns and mine is one of those. It was still wrapped and in the cosmoiline when I received it. The transferable M1/M2 have always interest me. They seem to be the cheapest American WW2 MG one can buy and price is in the ballpark of what I can afford. I currently own a Mac11/nine and enjoy the gun but want a second MG and something with a soul too it. Would prefer something that I can shoot and swap parts on. So with that said the M2/M1 do interest me. So if one was wanting to have a Shooter Grade M2 would I be better looking for a registered receiver or an registered parts kit? Which parts of a M2 are most likely to fail critically? I have seen registered trip bars & registered housings. The housings seem to be the way to go but could be wrong. Thoughts?
  10. Rules on creating a Stenling

    Talked to Andrewski about the conversion from sten tube to sterling and he said that he no longer does them. Which it doesn't matter since the 2 tubes I was looking at went for double than what I was expecting.
  11. Rules on creating a Stenling

    Buddy and I have been talking about Stenlings and wondered what the rules are on them as far as having one built? And who is doing the conversions? He is hoping to buy a registered tube and have someone build it out. But we both have a few questions. - Does the tube have to be a certain spec? - Any particular Parts kits to buy? - And whats the ATFs rules on building one out? If its marked as STEN on the F4 can it only be built out as a STEN? - Pretty sure I know the answer to this but can a sten that is complete be transformed into a stenling? - Whats the going rate for a professional conversion with refinishing? Any information shed on the topic would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Cool so a C&R sten. Nice buddy is looking for one and have shown him this thread.
  13. Is there really only 179,000 or so transferable’s

    Local Sheriff deputy who is also a MG owner told me that 2 MGs are in the bottom of Lake Hartwell. Guys wife got pissed at her husband grabbed 2 MK760 or similar and threw them in the lake at night. Happened years ago, she was punished from what I remember him saying. Either way there are 2 right there no longer in circulation.

  16. Free Suppressors for Transfer

  17. 1945 M5 60mm Mortar DD

    Do these have a optical sight or just some sort of iron sight? Would love to own this but not in the cards currently.
  18. Rules on creating a Stenling

    I am such a dummy... Not you Buddy H. lol Friend is getting ready to buy his first MG and was looking closely at a sten. I have a M11 and been trying to get him to buy a MG for the past year and a half. He has been saving his pennys and I have been helping him look for stens. Well we ran across a sten tube that was posted on here about a year ago at a gun shop close to us in GA. The sten tube has long been sold but it has gotten both myself and him talking about a stenling builds. Seems like picking up a registered tube for $4.5k spending another $500-1000 on a nice sterling kit the have someone build it out (for some amount guessing $1500-2000) and poof you have a 15K gun is a no brainier. But there has to be more to it than that. If that was the case I figured there would be alot more of these conversions taking place and all of the raw registered tubes would have all been built out by now. What am I missing? Open to reading past threads if this has been discussed before. Just post me the links. I am just here seeking knowledge. I am new to the game only one MG in & over 2 years of reading and looking and just trying to learn as much as I can.
  19. Just joined the site and wanted to get email updates when new NFA items are posted for sale. Everytime I click on the NFA section it kicks me out and I have to resign in. Am I missing something or do something wrong? Thanks for any possible help.
